It's Monday, which means the start of my first time ever doing DPP!

I thought I'd ease in with something light.


Yes we have songs that remind us of Pilots, but why? What are words that grab our gut and tug at out heart?

Things like:

Tell me, if we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend forever?
"La Familia", Mirah

We love in secret names
We hide within our veins
The things that keep us bound to one another
"The Secret's In The Telling", Dashboard Confessional

You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned
What it is to be in love and have that love returned
"Written in the Stars", Elton John

So unsure of who I'm supposed to be
The one who takes the noble path
Or the one who wants what he can never have
"Hardly A Hero", Levi Kreis

So go nuts and post lyrics (just try not to quote whole songs)!

It's Wednesday, it's time for a game! So, for today, I'm bringing back a game that some of you might have played a couple years back with [livejournal.com profile] taragel-- Name That Tune (Don't Forget The Lyrics, in this case).

So here's the deal: I put my music player on shuffle and I'm going to post a whole bunch of lyrics that remind me of pilots from the songs that came up below. Your job is to guess the name and artist of the song, which will be 1 point for you. Bonus point if you post the next line to the song. At the end, I'll tally up the scores, and I think there will be a prize to be won here...

A couple more instructions and the lyrics below the cut )

I know, I know! It's Christmas, it's crazy out there (Yes you really will be tackling people like a pro line backer!). You still haven't bought the presents for the kids, the school is demanding you still create 3 elf costumes and a Santa beard that looks good. Your mother wants to know when it is ok to come over and do not get started about your siblings! 

So instead, grab a cup of cocoa or a falvoured coffee instead (mmmm peppermint mocha) and throw a musical suggestion or two in the comments

We have seen the fan mixes, we have watched the fan vids, but what songs have made you think of pilots or piloty moments?

If you want to, you can even give the youtube video of it, if there is a Kara/Lee vid to it even better. But if all you have time for is a name and title that is cool too.

Sorry I'm late with today's DPP, guys - cramps and a weird-acting LJ embed function did mk. I of this post in, but now I'm back, with yet another question about pilots set to music - what are your favourite pieces of music that remind you of pilots, which you haven't yet seen as the soundtrack to a fanvid or inspiration for a songfic?

This post also serves as an open invite to anyone who wants to make vids using the music we mention here
- please, if you feel the beginnings of a vid coming on, make it and leave us the link! If any get done before the end of the week, they'll be the subject of my final DPP post. And even if you're not in a vidding mood, tell us about your personal soundtrack for pilots, any and all suggestions are welcome!

Anyway, here's my selection: 

1. Kissing In The Rain, by Patrick Doyle feat. Tori Amos (from the soundtrack of the 1998 Great Expectations)

This has always been one of my favourite pieces of music of all time, but I think it's particularly perfect for pilots because of the way it captures them - the romance, wistfulness, tension, yearning and forever EPICNESS that is them, so beautifully, and  (very appropriately for pilots) there are no words.

2. The Last of the Mohicans theme, by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman (in this vid, it's soundtracking a fan-made trailer for Serenity - sorry about that, it was the only vid I could find that had the shorter version of the song I wanted). Another epic romantic theme, which I think speaks quite a bit to the warrior side of pilots. 


3. Wishful Thinking, by Duncan Sheik (again, from the Great Expectations OST). With lyrics this time, but still pilots-appropriate. 


Enough about me, now. Tell me all about the songs that you think fit pilots and haven't actually been their background music yet!

PS: The pic at the top is there because I don't want to do a DPP with no pics of pilots, and they look so cute in their protective glasses (of course they can't wear real glasses for bad eyesight and still fly planes, but it's nice to have the image).

Howdy :)

So yesterday was fun, we talked about our favourite UFT's and by the way, if any of you missed the latter portion of the discussion which was directed mainly by [livejournal.com profile] nazkey , [livejournal.com profile] amaliak , and [livejournal.com profile] pali167  you should go check it out, it is FASS-TASTIC!

Today we're gonna talk a little bit about music, even though I'm certain that it's has been done before. It strikes me that pilots fandom is relatively short on song-fics, where most fandoms feed on them. And ok, I'm not the world's biggest fan of song-fics, my experience of them is that they are often clumsy and made lazy by virtue of being able to rely on lyrics to say what you want to without having to think of how you word it for yourself. I am however, interested in fic inspired by music, that doesn't necessarily use the song as part of the story.

Now, I know a lot of you guys are really into poetry and have written many wonderful fics inspired by/based around poetry. But what about songs?

Do you guys have favourite pilots songs? Have you written fics that were inspired by particular pieces of music/songs? Have you written actual song-fics? Does anyone have songs that they wish someone would write pilots fic based around? It's a musical free for all!

And to get you started, here are a few songs that make me think of pilots.


Everyone feel free to jump in with your songs, fic-recs, prompts or just general feelings. Or, if you feel like it, gifs of hot men being hot, because that's allowed too :)

I have a *monster* Kara/Lee playlist (179 songs!) after almost four years (!!!) of pilots obsession. My newest additions are Florence + The Machine's "Cosmic Love" and Azure Ray's "Love and Permanence." What are yours?

Taking my inspiration from [livejournal.com profile] wand3rlust's post in [livejournal.com profile] beyond_insane a bit ago, let's talk about song fic! By which I mean, is there one song that you're dying to have inspire a K/L fic? Post it here and see what happens!

(Hey mods, can we get a tag for "music" or "fanmixes" or "song fic" or something along those lines? ^_^)
